Interesting Article for the Wills Students

Canadian Lawyer Magazine has this article:

Power of attorney protection breaks down across borders
By Judy Van Rhijn

A scary prospect, since I've seen many elderly relocations (from one Province to another) due NOT to the "fight over the body before it's dead" that Ian Hull, of Hull and Hull LLP in Toronto is quoted as saying in the article, but due to the fact that relatives are in another province, and relocation is necessary as the requirement for care escalates; I think this is a key issue for so many people ... even if they're not fighting over this ... but just in trying to take care of affairs.

Nice to see that SK is taking a leadership role on this issue, though! Props to SK for being the only province to ratify the Hague Convention 35 so far!!
